We’re still waiting on the flying cars (Elon Musk, WYA?) but the LEGO Group is *finally* building up an Atari set, brick by brick. The set comes in celebration of Atari’s 50th Anniversary and is inspired by the four-switch revision of the Atari VCS/2600 that debuted in 1980.
LEGO promises that building the set is a journey within itself with 2,532 pieces. Fans can activate challenge mode as they build the console and uncover features like the moveable joystick. When you slide open the front, you can reveal a pop-up scene from the ‘80s-game room that either you or your dad remember.
The set features the three main staples of any Atari-owner’s collection: Asteroids, Adventure, and Centipede. You can store the cartridges in the case and build them into mini versions of the games. In true ‘80s fashion, the “console” includes a switch to choose whether your TV is in color or black and white.
You don’t have to look too far into the future for these ‘80s dreams to come true. Fans can find the set on Aug. 1 when it becomes available at LEGO Stores and on LEGO’s website. Game —and build — on!
